If you read Peggy Noonan's piece all the way through, she ends up saying words to the effect of "Obama would be so great, if only he didn't have all those creepy liberal ideas." Which is sort of the way I feel about McCain, only in reverse.
I am all for Obama, especially as Edwards is no longer around. I hope I'm right. Just bear this in mind. Adlai Stevenson also gave wonderful, thoughtful speeches. But the first thing a president has to be is forceful. He/she has to have the ability to make people do what he/she wants them to do. I hope Obama has that ability, but I don't know it. Do you?
